What is a Mage in WOW Classic? And how can you upgrade your skills and talent as a Mage from level 1 to level 60?
Just like all other professions of the game, like the Warrior profession, the Mage profession also has its own leveling system. Here’s what you need to know.
Mage Talents in WOW Classic:
Mages have three talent trees:
Frost is the most recommended leveling build due to its consistency and flexibility when dealing with world PVP. In addition to the strong defensive power of its chill and freeze effects. These effects will prevent most enemies from attacking back.
It’s one of the easiest specializations to play in WOW Classic. Another bonus is that it gets you to know the spells and talents you’ll be using during the first raids of WOW Classic. Sadly, its main disadvantage is that it can be slow to level with, relative to the alternative.
How to Level Up as a Mage in WOW Classic:
Now then, after talking about the basics of mages and their talent trees, let’s see how can you level up from 1 to 60.
While working your way to level 60 as a mage in WOW Classic, you should also level your professions. You also need to consider which gear or stats to pursue and how to complete your class quests.
Regarding the professions, it’s best to learn first aid as soon as possible for easy self-healing. “Skinning”, “Herbalism” and “Mining” are amazing primary professions for a leveling mage. These professions allow you to earn extra gold and obtain materials that you can use to level crafting professions later. If you need further explanation on the professions visit this guide.
There’s no doubt that mages are gear independent while leveling. However, you should still collect items with as much intellect as possible. This makes your Mana pool last longer before you have to drink or wait for regeneration.
“Spirit” is a useful stat for leveling. It increases your health and Mana regeneration rate. It comes quite handy while traveling. “Stamina” helps you live longer and it can be useful in PVP situations.
But mostly, you should try to kill enemies from a distance to minimize the damage. “Spell damage” will be of great help at maximum level, but it has no effect on wand damage, so don’t go out of your way to get it in on your gear.
